FROM THE AUTOMOTIVE BUREAU of the ALGONA CHAMBER of COMMERCE "FOR HAPPY HOLIDAYS - GIFT WRAP YOURSELF I" What's the most valuable present your family wants to find beside the Christmas tree? You. Without you, it wouldn't be Christmas. Without you, it wouldn't be a family. Without you, nothing would be right any more. So keep yourself safe, every way you can, for that family who loves you. One very easy but very important way: Take a couple of seconds before you start your car to lock the door and fatten your seat belt. Wrap yourself in the solid protection of that auto's safety-engineered body, in the gentle but firm restraint of that "circle of safety" belt. Do this every time you drive, whether, the trip be long or short. Eighty per cent of all accidents happen within 25 miles of the driver's home. Locking doors from the inside helps keep you in and other people out. Seat belts? Studies indicate that their regular use could save some 13,000 lives yearly and reduce injuries one-third. Incidentally, you are valuable to us, too. You are an important member of our "family" of friends. And it wouldn't be the same without you. So, before you drive—lock up, buckle up I Gift wrap yourself ... to ba a present with a future I Our best wishes for safe and pleasant holiday motoring for you and your family this Christmas season.
